Admin Tweaks


With Admin Tweaks you’ll be able to simplify and make deep customizations in the administrative interface.
It’s a compilation of hooks for enhancing, styling and reducing WordPress backend.

Do you like to adjust and style the backend as much as the frontend?
So, we are together!

Main Features

  • Admin Bar: remove, add and modify menu items.
  • Admin Menus: remove menu and submenu items; sort Settings menu; rename “Posts”.
  • Appearance: hide general elements; create admin notices.
  • Dashboard: remove and add widgets.

  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress.
  3. Go to Settings -> Admin Tweaks and have fun.


The ‘reset’ button doesn’t delete the database entry, but if you delete the plugin, the entry will be deleted (via unsinstall.php)


Why Many Tips Together? And why change its name to Admin Tweaks?

The first version of the plugin was a compilation of snippets.
It evolved to a General Admin Tweak plugin.
Most of the users who left feedback complained about it: too cryptic and hard to find.
Well, I agree, but I’m just changing the Display Name.
The Repository URL, Directory Name and Database Option Name are still keep original name.
